Breast screening management solution


One in eight women will develop a breast cancer in their lifetime. Therefore, breast screening is an important focal area of Philips. With a strong screening program in place, breast cancer can be detected early and patients can be saved by receiving the right treatment. We propose a complete solution for screening management that encompasses the entire patient journey, from the exam invitation to the mammography exam itself, to the report, and additional exams, as required. Our screening management program includes consultancy, quality assurance measures, education, outsourcing services, and measurement of key performance indicators.

Customer story of how one clinic delivers more personalized care to patients


Radiologist Dr. Helmut Klein from Steyr, Austria, uses Philips breast imaging solutions to deliver personalized care to his patients. For fast, comfortable mammograms with excellent image quality, he has chosen our MicroDose SI system. He has combined it with Philips Affiniti ultrasound and Ingenia MR, to create a comprehensive breast-imaging oncology center that provides full diagnostic services for women.

From screening to a complete oncology center


Once your screening program is in place, we can help you realize a complete oncology center. Here our MicroDose SI Mammography system works seamlessly with ultrasound, MR, PET/CT, IMRT treatment planning with Pinnacle3, the IntelliSpace Breast workstation, and PACS IT solutions.


You can draw upon our vast resources in room layout design, workflow improvement, financing, ambient lighting, and patient experience.
